PACT Foundation – Partnership for Community Action and Transformation aims to contribute to the sustainable development of rural and small to medium urban communities in the South of Romania by encouraging, supporting and promoting local and regional initiatives, partnership and social responsibility among individuals, companies, public authorities and institutions.
To this end, PACT Foundation works on four strategic directions:
- Community Development
- Social Economy, with a strong focus on Social Entrepreneurship
- Influencing Policy Making in areas of interest to it and its beneficiaries
- Organizational Development
The essence of PACT activities consists of empowering citizens and community members to take action in order to make changes in the communities they live in. To achieve this, PACT Foundation combines training, onsite consultation activities with community facilitation and seed funding.
PACT works with people living in rural areas and small towns from Southern Romania in order to create structures of civil society which they define as community based organizations and which they sustain to be active, efficient, effective, sustainable and visible in their region. PACT creates the premises for social and economic welfare in its target communities by encouraging the citizens to develop entrepreneurial abilities and by supporting their initiatives of social entrepreneurship.
PACT Foundation’s vision is that a large number of people living in rural and small urban areas should be active locally, to find solutions to the problems of their communities, to directly contribute to their own economic and social development, and to that of the community they belong to. Thus, through its programs and projects, PACT identifies people with initiative from local communities and supports them with resources and information in order to develop relevant projects in their communities.
To enhance its’ organizational capacity and increase its professional network, PACT Foundation engages in various relevant networks and partnerships, developing common European projects and actions.
